Decca Luxe, a division of Decca Records, reinvents music as a form of art creating timeless musical objects dedicated to iconic artists – a first within the music industry.
Luciano Pavarotti Life in Art is the first Masterpiece of the series. Decca Luxe has teamed up with British Bespoke Furniture Designers Linley and Nicoletta, the wife of the late Pavarotti, to create a beautiful marquetry art case. The art case is handcrafted by Linley and inspired by the tenor’s colourful oil paintings to signify his passion for painting.
Inside the art case, you will find rare never-before-seen prints of Pavarotti’s own works of art, as well as manuscript paper, brushes and oil paints all carefully selected to match the tenor’s palette. A personal letter from Nicoletta herself is also included!
Incorporated into the box is a specially-built music player containing Pavarotti’s entire recordings with Decca, totalling 130 hours. Let the outstanding technology transport you, with a sound sixty-four times superior to a CD you will feel as though you as though you are hearing Pavarotti’s voice first hand.
10 cases have been commissioned and are available worldwide. The cost of the painting box is £84,000 inclusive of VAT and delivery, part of the profits go to the Pavarotti foundation.
